Our artisans have combined history and craftsmanship with modern technology and manufacturing processes to construct the finest New Orleans treasures that are as beautiful as they are functional.
Andrew Bevolo Senior started Bevolo Metal Crafts as an industrial lantern manufacturer making lights supporting the Allied invasion crafts during D-Day. After America was victorious in the Second World War, Andrew Bevolo applied his knowledge to making gorgeous chandeliers and copper lanterns for the French Quarter in New Orleans on a small-scale basis. Quickly, his talent for copper lantern manufacturing quickly caught on; more and more people wanted his artisans' lanterns for themselves. Over the course of Bevolo's early years, the company took advantage of repairing and styling Southern lanterns that were over 100 years old to meet the demands of the public. Eventually, this culminated in Bevolo's signature metal rivets that have been used ever since by our artisans to craft our copper lanterns. It is this unique fusion of 19th-century aesthetics and 20th-century craftsmanship that allowed us to create the first French Quarter lanterns.
Are you interested in adding additional pizzazz to your French Quarter lantern? Take a look at the variety of "mustaches" that we offer. Bevolo's traditional mustaches are hand-made with a clean, French-inspired curl, while our circular mustaches offer a simple yet elegant take. People seeking an additional touch of old-world charm will find our scroll mustaches tempting, as customers find them to be a great balance between curl and size.
Inspired by the Romance cultures that once laid the foundation for the oldest areas of New Orleans, the six-sided French Quarter lantern can be customized by our workers to fit into any atmosphere required with a variety of tasteful accents available. Like the skilled hands of a baker making the curves of a New Orleans king cake, so do the hands of our artists work copper to make your perfect six-sided copper lantern uniquely your own.
